A longtime staff photographer for the now defunct Sacramento Union, passed away on Saturday in Sacramento.
Former co-worker Bryan Patrick , now a staff photographer for the Sacramento Bee, remembers Henry as a quiet guy who didn't bring attention to himself and was the one you didn't see but always got the shot. Henry shot everything with a smile and probably the hardest worker on staff said Patrick.
He retired from the Sacramento Union about 20 years ago. His son, H. Lorren Au Jr., followed him into the business and is now is a staff photographer for the Orange County Register. He is also survived by his other son, Rick, and daughters Arlane and Cindy and 12 grandchildren. His wife, Mary, passed away six years ago.
No services are planned.
